State Grant Awarded to Danville Borough

(HARRISBURG) – The Borough of Danville, Montour County has been awarded a $248,978 grant through the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) to upgrade its traffic signal and make pedestrian improvements at the intersection of US 11 (Bloom Street) and Ferry Street/Walnut Street, according to Senator John R. Gordner (R-27). 

“I want to congratulate Danville Borough for targeting this grant program,” said Senator Gordner.  “These funds will be very beneficial in improving traffic and pedestrian safety in the downtown area.”

The funds are made available through PennDOT’s Automated Red Light Enforcement program, which draws funds from red light violations from 30 intersections in Philadelphia.  Eligible uses of the funds include the improvement of safety, increasing mobility and reducing congestion in the municipality.  Since 2010, $62.87 million in projects have been awarded statewide.
